Realisation of a testing ground in which Probe Vehicle Data, sensor data from cars and sensor data from agricultural vehicles are being combined into one big open database in the cloud (Vetuda®). Accordingly, with these data, amongst others weather and traffic warnings, applications for traffic centres or agricultural applications for precision farming can be developed. Consequently, partners and potential users can add data, retrieve data and/or develop services.

Facilitated by

  • European Fund for Regional Development (EFRD) from the European Union
  • Province Noord-Brabant
  • OPZuid, Europees Innovatieprogramma Zuid-Nederland.


Increasingly more and smart data in all sorts of different databases alone, is not sufficient for an optimal commercial and social use. Big Data ought to be accessible for a maximal number of users, should be able to be combined with each other and/or be enriched for specific applications and users. By means of free queries, users should be able to enrich and mine relevant data for themselves.

By purposefully combining sensor data from the automotive and agricultural value chains in a testing ground, into one accessible database in which all data can be combined with each other an extra synergy arises. This synergy does not only speed up the innovation in the concerned sectors, but through which new combined data can be composed as well. Data that are also relevant for other sectors such as for instance logistical planning centres, health/air quality and infrastructure asses management.

The uCANDATA®/SENTRAC data testing ground eventually has to become an internationally operating commercial Big Data platform, for the automotive and agricultural sector in the first place and in the second place amongst others for the logistical sector as well. A testing ground and platform upon which other developers and suppliers of technology, data and services are being invited to experiment as well and/or join to develop and offer their services within the platform.


The duration of the project is 36 months.
